Wenger Bullish On Arsenal's Fourth Spot Hopes Sports pundit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is confident his side can finish fourth and clinch a spot in the UEFA Champions League after defeating West Bromwich 2-1 on Saturday.

The Gunners remain firmly in the hunt for Champions League football thanks to the win, where Tomas Rosicky netted twice after Per Mertesacker was sent off.

“I believe we will do it. We are conscious as well we have to give 100 percent commitment in every game and it will be difficult and edgy to the end,” Wenger said.

“We know we have one target — to win our games, then we don’t have to look at Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea. If you lose our games, then you have to look at the results of the others. Our attitude is simple: we have to win the games.

“I am very pleased, it is three big points. We have 22 points out of the last 27, but we know our target is to continue to do that until the end of the season. We are ready for the fight.

“It was a difficult game against a good West Bromwich side, who were really up for it. They fought until the very last second of the game.

“We have shown important aspects to our game: control and technical quality, and one that is less known, fighting spirit and battling qualities that reflect well on the spirit in our side.”
